For 'lovevintage'--vintage garden junk :)

Anything old is in danger of becoming landscape decor at my house. First is my old cast iron tub--my sister bought it to put in her yard, then her DH decided it was too tacky, so he suggested I might want it:

The old enamel sink that my DD pulled off someone's trash dump--not a good pic. The old bin on top became my kitchen hood: (See that project here.)

An old pedestal sink my mother found somewhere, positioned against our old barn:

And, since we have a 3-pc bath, our outhouse, which was moved from a neighbor's property. I have no idea what happened to the original from our 1920's farm cottage/bungalow:

Before the hops vine grew over it:

Old gate from a metal works in Cincinnati, OH:

Old wagon wheel and milk cans, outside back door:

Fancy goose--not an antique, but I love her creeping phlox boa:

My FIL's old wheelbarrow, in the wildflower corner:

Graniteware pots and a bucksaw on the old milkhouse/buttery:

Vintage watering cans on the front steps--the green one on the bottom was my grandmother's:

My grandfather's old well pump, on a well that was capped in the 1940's:

Bluebird family nests in the pump:

Babies hatched on Mother's Day. I'm so proud! ;)

This is the spread, and our little valley, from the top of the hill. We have the buildings, and a 3 acre remnant of the original dairy farm:

I don't know what's wrong with my album link, but here's a link to my GW thread:

Thank you, caroleena and bootscootengal. Here is a pic from last night's amazing sunset. It's such a contrast to the light-bright pic above.
